Trading Strategies Evolution: Copy Trading

Recommended Posts

In 2019, the biggest pain point in the futures market was the influx of inexperienced traders who frequently faced liquidation due to their inadequate trading skills. These inexperienced traders were then lured by various KOLs (Key Opinion Leaders) and signal providers to unreliable exchanges, where they were once again taken advantage of. Under this complex situation, these novice futures traders suffered greatly. 

Users priority is very important in ranking centralised exchanges and expression of concerns for inexperienced traders gave rise to the innovation of Copy trading. Since then, it has helped both new and experienced traders to navigate and implement their trades saving time and making profits in a very adequate path. Crypto copy trading is an innovative strategy for anyone to automatically duplicate the particular transactions of proven elite crypto investors, automating the entire crypto trading process.

Certain major exchanges like Bitget and Bybit have popularly made this feature available for users. Investing in cryptocurrencies requires many hours of time and investigation. You must be able to find “hidden germs” and trading opportunities and manage each trade, which takes even more time and emotional control. Copy trading in crypto eliminates the need for all of this labour. It enables anyone, regardless of experience or talent, to profit from crypto market investments without investing time.

Taking Bitget as case study, Bitget was a pioneer in product innovation and introduced a one-click copy trading feature. This feature allows novice users to automatically copy elite traders' opening and closing trades meaning they can replicate the buys and sells of top traders from the Bitget leaderboard, which presently lists 500 winning traders with a proven track record of success from around the globe. Some have a return on investment (ROI) that exceeds 10,000%.. The entire process was transparent, and the elite traders would earn a portion of the copied trades, a win-win-win strategy.

By pioneering the copy-trading product, Bitget established a solid position in the derivatives market and continued to refine its product design while quietly accumulating strength, eventually seizing its own opportunities. The latest report for the second quarter still shows Binance, OKX, Bybit, and Bitget as the top four players in the derivatives market, with little difference among the latter three. 

Copy trading has generally has made users to make profits easily and has contributed immensely to the market making a great positive impact in crypto.

Considering how overwhelming the crypto space can be, I think the introduction of Copy trading has been a hit, and a plus for Bitget as the biggest Copy trading CEX. Perhaps one of their biggest strengths and attraction for users even in an unstable market.

Copy trading is now an integral part of crypto because that's the easiest way new and novice users can benefit from the industry without needing to know the nitty gritty of trading. It's great to see that exchanges are working assiduously to improve the features and enhance better experience for users and exchange like Bitget has really stood out. With over 110,000 elite traders to select from, users have a wide range of options to select the kind of traders that align with their investment strategy and risk management which is a very important aspect to consider when using this features.

Copy trading is an incredibly time-saving investment choice for newcomers. Recently, I've been hearing a lot of buzz about Bitget's copy trading. Especially since they disclosed their amount of realized PnL of $350M. This is likely bcz they have a huge number of professional traders

The buzz is real, especially with them revealing a whopping $350M in realized PnL.  That's some serious action!

Seems like their success might stem from having a vast pool of professional traders on board. For newcomers, copy trading is a fantastic time-saving investment choice. 

Now, while we're on the topic, I'm curious – what are the best ways to learn how to day trade? Share your insights! Let's create a knowledge pool to help each other navigate the trading waters.

    • Interoperability: Different blockchain networks follow distinct protocols and rules, making it challenging for them to communicate and share data/assets effortlessly. This creates isolated ecosystems that struggle to interact smoothly. For instance, if a blockchain supply chain system needs to exchange information with a finance blockchain to process payments, the lack of interoperability complicates the process significantly. Scalability: Scalability refers to a blockchain's ability to handle increasing numbers of users and transactions without performance degradation. Many popular blockchains, such as Bitcoin and Ethereum, face scalability challenges. They require every node to validate each transaction, limiting their transaction processing capacity. As more users join or transaction volumes rise, the network becomes congested, leading to slower speeds and higher fees. This scalability issue hinders blockchain's use for high-traffic applications like global payment systems or decentralized apps (DApps). To address these challenges, researchers are working on solutions such as: For interoperability - developing standard protocols or "bridges" that enable seamless communication between different blockchains. Examples include Polkadot, Cosmos, and Nervos. For scalability - approaches like sharding (dividing the blockchain into smaller pieces to process transactions in parallel), off-chain scaling (conducting some transactions off the main chain), and others. The Nervos Network, a Layer 1 and 2 blockchain, aims to tackle interoperability and scalability issues using its Proof-of-Work consensus and tools like the Universal Passport for creating "Universal Applications" that can function across different chains. Overcoming these hurdles is crucial for mainstream blockchain adoption, enabling smooth integration with existing systems, high transaction volumes, and interconnected decentralized applications across multiple blockchain networks.
    • Coingecko recently dropped a Q1 report on the crypto industry. Interestingly, a couple of the centralised exchanges were captured showing their growth and decline thus far.  Some of the highlights include the Futures trading volume. Binance is held to have had a volume of 43% in january with a slight drop to 42% and then back to 43%. Gleaning from this, there was really no growth on the part of Binance as per futures trading.  Similarly, platforms like OKX and Bybit had no significant increase as well. The CEXs are still hovering around 16% and 13% respectively.  However, platforms like Bitget have shown some amount of growth thus far witnessing an increase of 3% from 9% in february thus peaking the percentage at 12%. The platform has also witnessed an increased user base. The recent features incorporated by the platform to make trading easy accounts for this. In a juxtaposition to the above, the spot trading volume has also grown considerably. As at january, the spot volume was at about $29 billion, in february it grew to $36 billion. The march volume peaked it all with about $95 billion.  As can be seen in the report, Bitget have grown considerably. With the concerted efforts of the team, the platform is a recipe for growth. https://www.coingecko.com/research/publications/2024-q1-crypto-report
    • Step into the future of blockchain technology with Nervos Network (CKB), an open-source public blockchain ecosystem designed to create a peer-to-peer (P2P) crypto-economy network. With its ambitious goal of providing provably secure blockchain services and capabilities, Nervos Network stands as a beacon of innovation in the decentralized landscape. At the heart of Nervos Network's innovation lies the Universal Passport, a suite of tools that enables the creation of Universal Applications. These applications have the unique ability to leverage the full potential of the Nervos Network ecosystem, offering users access to a wide range of blockchain services and capabilities. With the Universal Passport, developers can unlock new possibilities and drive innovation in the decentralized space. Excitement mounts as Nervos Network (CKB) makes its debut on Bitget Exchange, providing users with the opportunity to deposit and trade CKB tokens on the platform. This listing not only expands the reach of Nervos Network but also offers users a trusted and secure platform to engage with the CKB token. As Nervos Network continues to push the boundaries of blockchain technology, its listing on Bitget Exchange marks a significant milestone in its journey towards broader recognition and adoption.
